    NEW YORK, NY (August 28, 2013)—The latest Golf World/NGCA Division I College Women’s Coaches’ Poll has been released, combining the resources of Golf World magazine and the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA).

    With its comeback victory at the Dale McNamara Fall Preview, USC cemented its hold on the No. 1 spot in the latest Golf World/WGCA women's Division I coaches' poll. The Trojans claimed all 21 available first-place votes, having won their fourth straight event dating back to last spring when the team was the runaway winner at the NCAA Championship.

    Alabama remained in the No. 2 spot, while Oklahoma jumped to No. 3 after finishing second to USC at the Fall Preview. It's the highest the Sooners have ever been ranked in the Golf World poll since it was resumed in 2001-02.
